My thoughts about the movie::

I just finished watching it.. and for being a diehard ff7 fan, i must say i liked it. If you are a fan of FF7, watch it. if you dont know about ff7.. watch the cg, ignore everything else.

it was too close to casshern, all about the fancy packaging but zero content

and pretty bad music too, the only part i liked was the ringtone thing

I played FFVII about 30 minutes one time, and it seemed pretty boring.

14 Name: Rysuke 2005-09-26 07:28 ID:V8Asc8oZ

Well i tought that the movie was fantastic and i think those who played and finished ff7 would be glad that the story turns out this way.

Thats beacuse you dont care and only watch the CG and anime clishé shit.

19 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-05 16:02 ID:Qv0vW0Q8

>>11 Same here, but the movie is absolutely gorgeous. I came when I saw Tifa.

20 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-06 07:36 ID:ERPXwH1P

Using CG for what it's good for... ACTION.

21 Name: TV 2005-10-11 05:59 ID:PwGpHeqR

I just want to drop a reply here, I finished watching FF7:AC and I think that is one hell of a great CG movie and I LOVE IT! ^-^ well, at least I enjoyed watching it!

22 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-11 09:32 ID:RxTxI9ki

watched it 3 weeks ago...
and i forgot this movie even existed.

this means only one thing: movie no go

23 Name: R35553H 2005-10-17 07:13 ID:15WEzUmA

This is the movie Square Enix supposed to put out instead of that stupid FF: POS within movie.

24 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-21 20:27 ID:EcHWZ4Rk

I went into Advent Children expecting a weak attempt by Square to squeeze another buck out of the popularity of FF7.

I was right.

I loved in where the whole gang returned to help out against SIN Bahamut, albeit too dramatically (but that's what makes it great I guess)

27 Name: Potato Couch 2006-02-15 19:28 ID:SGBYxfZf

I wish it was longer, had more of the areas, <b>Wutai</b>, <b>Golden Saucer</b>, like stated before. In fact, I would have been content with the whole game remade into a cg movie, skipping nothing, no words skipped, no actions skipped, no areas skipped. Like a 5 hour movie. It's a great movie, but they could have added more.

><b>Wutai</b>, <b>Golden Saucer</b>

lol I fail, but to add, I think there should have been more of an epic battle, that made you like, get chills. The sephiroth battle didn't really deliver that feeling. It made you think, "lol oh shit yeah this is sick" but it didn't give you the same feeling as if he had 3 different forms, which he probably should have.

29 Name: Couch Potato 2006-02-15 23:13 ID:pMwRYINc

wutai and golden saucer would have just made the movie too unfocused. I liked how they tried to keep the movie focused (and yet were still able to incorperate the rest of the cast without diffusing the focus too much). And 3 forms might be fun for a game but since it was done in the game alread, to do it again in the movie? i think it would have been too overplayed. the movie was great the way it is ^_^

this movie reminds me on how strong Sephiroth is. I don't think Cloud is weak, considering he is the strongest of the group. But in the duel, it seemed to me that Sephiroth isn't even trying.

31 Name: Couch Potato 2006-02-20 17:40 ID:5RuyJjg1

I thought the end fight was playing in Cloud's head, hence Sephiroth dissapearing in a flew of black feathers.

Overall it was technically good, but story and character-wise crap. Too bad Square is so money hungry to even crap on their own great works.

32 Name: Couch Potato 2006-02-20 21:25 ID:pMwRYINc

>>30 I agree, in that way they preserved Sephiroth's character and yet gave a reason for Cloud to be able to go one on one with him and still win.

and I don't think it was in Cloud's head. it seemed pretty literal and the sudden power upgrade from the spirit seemed pretty blatent. hey, in that way, it's like sephiroth had multple forms. first as the spirit and then as himself!

I reckon Advent Children has got to be the best CG films i have seen yet but the story people will not get it if they have not played the game. personaly i think its very good for the FF7 fans.

35 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-04-27 09:13 ID:vHWHUjjp

same here haha I cried whenever aerith appeared too.

Such a great movie, awesome CG, amazing fight scenes. I personaly prefer the japanese version over the english one though.

36 Name: NNB : 2006-05-01 16:32 ID:FY2aNBeg

Aeris, ftw. Only reason I loved AC so much.

37 Name: Visual Shock : 2006-05-17 01:00 ID:39BnmPl+

I thought advent children was pretty lame. The best part was when that victory jingle played on what's-her-name's cell phone after that fight in the cathedral. But the fights were... well, silly. And the plot, well,,, nonsensical... And the characters... well, plastic.

41 Name: [Spoiler] : 2007-05-18 21:07 ID:QgRMnquz

The movie was cool, but you just don't remember it. No chills down your spine, no revelations, nothing too epic.
Story... yeah, whatever, I don't usually follow stories very well anyway, in any movie.
Characters : gotta play the game. They're all showing up suddenly, when Bahamut arrives (fucking shitty design by the way... no, nice to see, but he can't fly like this... you wonder how he can even move... they should have kept the game's design, it was cool, simple, perfect), lending cloud courage and stuff, and then you never see them again.

they changed the original one winged angel to a new version called "Advent one winged angel"

too understand the story you have to play the game, the DVD had a FF7 story line where it showed scenes from the game the follows to the movie. The new blue ray disk contains some new scenes apparently
